Sumach

The brilliant red leaves of sumach are perhaps my favourite among fall colours.  Although there weren't really any reds in the maples and other trees this year, the faithful sumach still turns itself on fire.  Again, the best shots are shooting into the sun, with the sun shining through the leaves.  All of these shots were taken right here in our front yard a week or two ago, though I've seen lots of sumach elsewhere that looked the same.

  1. I love sumacs, too, for its color in the fall. The berries make a lemony flavored drink also. Nice photos.

  7. The sumac put out a great red for you. Ours in this area are reddish brown this year.

  8. Yes, sumac never lets us down, even though our maples sure did this year.

  9. I love them too. They are pretty shriveled here now but I enjoyed them. I love looking at the sun through them...like stained glass.

  12. Sumac is always the most brilliant red. I now have a patch of shining sumac (winged) in my back yard, which is always stunning.
